I just eat a lot of protein and a lot of veggies, and I make sure I get my carbs because the way I work out, I need healthier carbs like brown rice or sweet potatoes because if I cut out carbs, I would have no energy to do what I do.

For breakfast today, I had scrambled eggs, spinach, and a cup of brown rice. I would say most of the time it’s grains, protein, and rice, but sometimes for lunch, I don’t do as many carbs because it makes me sleepy. But for breakfast, it’s such a good start—especially after my workout, I’m dead tired and I need fuel for the whole day. My biggest meal is breakfast—sometimes I have it twice because I’m so hungry.

“I used to drink a lot more milk when I was home [in Denmark], but I don’t love the milk here—that’s just like a taste thing. But I don’t really cut out any food groups. I think just everything in moderation—I feel like the second you cut something out it becomes Oh, I’m not allowed to have that. I obviously don’t eat sugar and junk food every day, but I make sure once a week you have a good treat day and you just go all out.

“For snacks, I love everything from fruit to carrots or nuts—like a little handful of nuts keeps me going or just a half a portion of what I ate earlier. I always carry fruit and nuts with me. Nut bars are good and easy to bring in your bag.”

“I’ve tried every workout, and I think that’s a journey everyone has to go through to figure out what works for your body. The best advice I can give is to make sure that it’s fun. Working out doesn’t have to be lifting weights or spinning—it can be Zumba dancing, swimming, or hiking. I’ve tried everything from yoga to spinning to Pilates, and the workout that I’ve landed on is weights. I finally got past the myth that girls develop muscles so quickly that I was scared I would lift one weight and be bulky, but really, if you stick with it and take a few weeks off, muscle memory helps you snap back.

“On a good week, I go to the gym five days a week, sometimes three days a week, or sometimes I can’t even make it one, so I really try to listen to my body. I always say that every day is a good day to go to the gym, and because of the schedule I have, I can’t say Oh, I’ll go on Mondays, because I don’t know what I’ll be doing next Monday. Don’t feel guilty about it—set yourself a goal that’s reachable, don’t over-exceed, and find a buddy.

Working out with friends really helps. That’s how we girls stay motivated because we’re like, I really can’t go, and one of the Angels will say Hey, we’re doing a 7 p.m. workout—join us!’ There’s no such thing as a bad workout. Even if you make it a half-hour, it’s good to go and get out there.

“A year and a half ago, I decided to be a morning workout person. It took me four months to not hate it—I was such a night person, but there was always a dinner, or something came up, or a friend wanted coffee, or you sit on the couch and you turn on Netflix. So I really made it a thing. It’s like eating breakfast for me now; it’s just a habit, it’s what I do. I don’t ask myself, Do I want to wake up at 5 a.m. to work out at 6 a.m.? I just set my schedule that’s just what it is. So it’s a habit for me, and it takes a while to form a habit.

My workouts are an hour long. I would say 80% of my workout is weights, and then I add in cardio once or twice a week. I notice that I lose my muscles when I [just do] cardio. Some of the other girls do more cardio because it’s better for their body shape—again, it’s so hard for me to give you specifics and say, If you work out like this, your body is going to look like mine. Half of it’s genetics, and half of it is figuring out what works for you. But it’s a journey, and it’s hopefully a fun journey.”
